Mad about cats - two birthday cards!

This is our neighbour's cat who loves to come into our house
 and make herself at home!  Isn't she beautiful, even upside down!

I have quite a long list of cards I need to make for family and friends (what joy!!) and what good timing, some stamps I ordered from QVC arrived today
 and I couldn't resist using them.

Cats 1, Cats 2 and Cats 3
from Personal Impressions
designed by Lindsay Mason

I kept the cards very simple and on this first one stitched
my nephew's name freehand.

Here's a close up

How could I not put this image on the back of the card!

The scruffy blue colour is 'Stormy Sky' Distress Ink.

Here's the second one

The letters are die cut (Sizzix Sizzlet alphabet 'alpha bubbles')
from self adhesive paper (the letter 'n' looks a bit odd -
maybe I cut it in reverse!)
I stamped another of the cats onto the same paper,
and added some 'Baby Blue' Stickle accents.

Another cat of course on the back of the card too!

Not quite as cheeky, but just as cute!

Dylan has four cats at home so hopefully he'll like these cards.

Miaow xx

He's going to love them just like I do!
P.S. Why can't I look that cute upside down? Maybe I need to spend more time licking my fur and waxing my whiskers.....LOL
